Laleh June Galerie is pleased to present at Kunst 13 Zürich an exhibition of Marc Rembold entitled Absolut Red which takes its theme and title from the Marc Rembold's Absolut Red, 2009 – from Liquids series – in 230 x 132 cm.

Marc Rembold was born in Zurich in 1963. Since early 2000s he has exhibited Swiss and internationally US, Canada, UAE, Russia and Asia, included in prestigious swiss and international private collections. His work, organized by series – 'Light in Colour', 'Liquids', 'Pure Pigments', 'Glamour', '3D', 'Filimini Maximalisme', 'Light Sculptures', 'Deja-vu objects' a.o. – underlines Marc Rembold self-proclaimed "Glamoury Pop Art Kitsch".
The exhibition Absolut Red including Liquids Paintings, Light sculptures, a recent sculpture; Rose Petrol, 2008/2012 / for 100 years of Readymade and a nude neon Love Me Love Not Love Me, 2013. In this exhibition, the artist challenges traditional concepts of the medium of painting and continues the dialogue between painting and artist's innovations which have been a constant in his work since the early 1980s.
Since 1980s Marc Rembold has started to develop his own artistic language with his colour Light in Colour, defined as living colours, which change colour with the temperature of the light. This perception of light and ''changing colour living colour'' was futuristic in the late 1980s and inspired and approved later by varnish car industry and fashion. Later in 1990s the first series of Rembold's Liquids paintings were born. Liquids colours are inspired from the electromagnetic waves of the light spectrum. The light contains all invisible colours as electromagnetic waves. With the knowledge of different frequencies of colour's waves, in each of the Liquids paintings, I define the colour, virtually and electronically, says the artist. The work, "a manifest of the immaterial to material", brings visible the realm of the light's invisible colour spectrum.

Liquids painting is formulated in its technological challenges, painting under the impact of technological innovations. Marc Rembold's Liquids painting fusing technology and extremely refined pictorial reflection, open a new horizon of questions.

Marc Rembold since 2008 is represented by Laleh June Galerie for Switzerland.
